Delivered face-to face at BGU, you will gain practical teaching skills, receive support and feedback from expert tutors and peers, and become part of the worldwide TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) community.
You do not need the ability to speak another language, nor prior experience of teaching. This 4-week Trinity CertTESOL course is an intensive, highly-practical teacher-training programme which provides you with the professional qualification and practical experience to take your first steps as an ESOL teaching professional. Through a range of teaching methods and assessments you will learn about English grammar, teaching methodologies and materials: the key content and knowledge you will need to become a successful teacher. In addition to this, you will develop your teaching skills by observing experienced English-language teachers and, with guidance and feedback, progress to teaching English classes.
To secure a place on this exciting course you need to be a native speaker of English or have a native-speaker level of English with qualifications (such as A Levels) or professional experience necessary for entry to university-level study. You may have a degree already and require a professional qualification for entry into EAL/ESOL employment. You need to be passionate about teaching and have the desire to interact with people from different language and cultural backgrounds. You will have an interest in the English language and its global status, and be able to commit to studying for the duration of the course.
